Sorry, Boba Fett fans! The fan-favorite bounty hunter will not show up in Disney+'s Star Wars: The Mandalorian.
Asked directly if Boba Fett will appear on the series, creator Jon Favreau said, "Boba Fett is not. They're all-new, original characters."
"I'm at a time frame that there's a 30-year stretch of storytime that hasn't been explored at all, except in the Extended Universe," he added.
However, fans can expect plenty of other Easter eggs. "Even the rifle with a forked end on it, the bayonet on the end, was from the holiday special with Boba Fett in it -- the original time you saw him. So we have lots of deep cuts in the show and I can't wait for people who love Star Wars to see it," he teased.
The series takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, decades prior the current Star Wars sequel trilogy. Fans can likely expect to see an era of change depicted in The Mandalorian, as the galaxy struggles to shift and adapt to the sudden fall of the tyrannical Empire.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The series debuts Nov. 12 on Disney+, the same date as the streaming service's official launch.
